Nominations are now being accepted through November 15, 2012 for Test&Measurement World’s Best in Test, Test of Time, and Test Engineer of the Year.
Please nominate your products and engineers as soon as you can. I’m sorry for the delay, which we can blame in part on Hurricane Sandy, which took a straight path for our offices (both home and business!)
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
